My initial instinct is to set up separate child domains for each office and put a DC there. I.E. Miami.Company.Local, Denver.Company.Local, etc. In researching this methodology, I started thinking about AD sites. What are the advantages/disadvantages of using child domains for separate offices vs. different sites in the same domain? I spent some time searching the net for this, but didn’t come up with anything conclusive. Thanks -Grant Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
